Bixby Canyon Bridge
Death Cab For Cutie
Narrow Stairs

This is meant to be an acoustic rendition of the song.  The Bass line obviously does a 
amount of "walking," but the root chords are good enough for playing on acoustic.

---------
-Verse A-
---------

C             Am                C
I descended a dusty gravel ridge
            Am                 C
Beneath the Bixby Canyon Bridge
           Am             C
Until I eventually arrived
       Am
At the place where your soul had died

---------
-Verse B-
---------

F        C      G       F
Barefoot in the shallow creek
            C           G         F
I grab some stones from underneath
           C         G        F (hold an extra measure)
Waiting for you to speak to me

---------
-Verse A-
---------

C                  Am                  C
In the silence it became so very clear
             Am                   C
That you had long ago disappeared
             Am                         C
And I curse myself for being surprised
                Am
That this didn't play out like it did in my mind

---------
-Verse B-
---------

F          C     G             F
All the way from San Francisco
         C     G                F
As I chase the end of your rope
               C   G           F
'Cause I've still got miles to go

---------
-Verse C-
---------
F
     C         G    F
I want to know my fate
    C      G         F
If I keep up this way
       C     G          F
Its hard to want to stay
       Am    E
Aw  -  a  -  y

F
       C    G         F
Then everyone you meet
             C   G       F
Will all seem to be asleep
         C               G               D
And you wonder if you're missing your dream
          F          D
You can't see your dream
          F          D
You can't see your dream
           F         D          F
Just can't see your dream

--------
-Chorus-

-Outro-
-------
C
        Am                   C
Then is started getting dark
                      Am                       C
And I trudged back to where the car was parked
             Am               C
No closer to any kind of truth
            Am                    (rest)
As I must assume was the case with you
